Vision. A precious gift to be preserved.
The Tertiary Retinal Surgery Program at Good Samaritan Hospital offers
specialized treatment for diseases of the back of the eye that put vision
at risk. State of the art care is provided for conditions or injuries
to the retina, the nerve lining that converts images to electric signals
which are sent to the brain; the vitreous, the jelly-like substance filling
the middle of the eye; and the macula, a light-sensitive area of the retina
which allows for seeing fine details clearly.
If you have vision-related problems, you will want to receive your care
from highly trained and experienced specialists. The Tertiary-Retinal
Surgeons who practice at Good Samaritan Hospital, have completed ophthalmology
residency as well as fellowship training in the medical diseases and surgical
treatments of the retina, vitreous and macula.
Conditions treated by the specialists who practice at the Tertiary Retinal
Surgery Program include:
Macular hole and macular pucker
Retained lens material and dislocated intraocular lens
Retinitis and uveitis
